Our ambition should be to rule ourselves, the true kingdom for each one of us; and true progress is to know more, and be more, and to do more.
There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.
Racism oppresses its victims, but also binds the oppressors, who sear their consciences with more and more lies until they become prisoners of those lies. They cannot face the truth of human equality because it reveals the horror of the injustices they commit.
The more elaborate our means of communication, the less we communicate.
The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.
This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.
And we have done more in the two and a half years that I've been in here than the previous 43 Presidents to uphold that principle, whether it's ending 'don't ask, don't tell,' making sure that gay and lesbian partners can visit each other in hospitals, making sure that federal benefits can be provided to same-sex couples.
The more horrifying this world becomes, the more art becomes abstract.
In life, particularly in public life, psychology is more powerful than logic.
I believe that a trusting attitude and a patient attitude go hand in hand. You see, when you let go and learn to trust God, it releases joy in your life. And when you trust God, you're able to be more patient. Patience is not just about waiting for something... it's about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting.
Persuasion is achieved by the speaker's personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible.

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
George Bernard Shaw
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.
Solitude is painful when one is young, but delightful when one is more mature.
America's veterans embody the ideals upon which America was founded more than 229 years ago.
The emotional brain responds to an event more quickly than the thinking brain.
I always wished for this, but it's almost turning into more of a nightmare than a dream.
Good words cool more than cold water.
A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
The better a work is, the more it attracts criticism; it is like the fleas who rush to jump on white linens.
I'm always depressed when a book ends, because those are my friends for however long the book takes to write. Since I spend so many hours with these fictional people, I sometimes see them more than my real friends. And then they're gone, and we'll never be together like that again.
If equal affection cannot be, let the more loving be me.
W. H. Auden
The month of November makes me feel that life is passing more quickly. In an effort to slow it down, I try to fill the hours more meaningfully.
A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.
Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise.
George Washington Carver
A good job is more than just a paycheck. A good job fosters independence and discipline, and contributes to the health of the community. A good job is a means to provide for the health and welfare of your family, to own a home, and save for retirement.
James H. Douglas, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
